Who farted in Fox Sports’ Cheerios?

whyumad

Jeff Goodman left Fox Sports a little while ago, moving on to sully the good name of CBS for a spell. One thing that apparently didn’t leave with Goodman was the ability for Fox to post ridiculous, ignorant, and sometimes downright idiotic stuff on its website. The NBA draft gave them the opportunity to do just this, and they obliged it by tossing out two of the dumbest draft blurbs on the whole interweb about Kentucky’s second-round picks.

First, there’s this glowing endorsement of Josh Harrellson:

Prospect Rank: 79

Traded to Knicks. Josh Harrellson is not an NBA player. Congrats to him for getting drafted, but he’s got no business being taken. He’s tall and he works hard. That’s it.

That’s funny, because I thought getting drafted by the Knicks would make someone an NBA player. It’s a shame you weren’t tall, Mr. Draft Analyzer, or you could have made it to the league, because clearly you work very hard at your current job, making sure to get every detail right. Like in this snippet about DeAndre Liggins:

Prospect Rank: 54

Liggins essentially got squeezed out of Kentucky to make room for all the top recruits. He lacks the athleticism that some of the other defensive guards in this draft have had.

Nevermind. Turns out you don’t work very hard, because if you did, you’d know how stupid the two sentences you just wrote would be before writing them. It’s one thing to be a hater. It’s another to be a moron. Fox…this would fall into the ‘moron’ category. We expect better. Actually, we don’t.

    Goodman is a schmuck. I hope Jorts calls him out after his first double-double. And I hope Liggins taunts him after a game like he did the WVU players this year… “Do the John Wall now!”

    Ligg’s athleticism is what makes him a great defender

    Fox Sports is an off shoot of Fox News. Next time either reports the truth will be the first.

    Goodman fails at life!

  5. Pretty funny. Fox consistently disappoints on actual facts, but that never stops them from having plenty of stupid opinions.

    What do you expect? It is Fox Sports…..they suck! They are the minor leagues of sports reporting. They try to be like CBS, NBC, and ABC but they are no where near that.

    I hope Josh and DeAndre see that, those two get ignited by that sort of stuff and it will only make them work harder.

    Sorry for the typo at the bottom, please disregard.

    Further, in the categories of “Consensus All Americans” and “Consensus All-American Total Selections”, UK is actually #2 in both of these categories (behind Kansas), not #1. Sorry for this typo, I just caught it. Please update accordingly. Everything else is completely updated and accurate, I assure you. Have a nice day!

    So, in 42 major categories, Kentucky is #1 in 30 of them, #2 in 10 of them, #4 in one, and #5 in one. That’s complete domination folks, and should leave little doubt about who has the best tradition in the history of college basketball. Show this to a Louisville, IU, or UNC fan today!

    Goodman pretends to be a Kentucky guy when it’s convenient, which, hey, that’s fine. Just to make it clear, though: I’m not going to stop calling him a jackass. He always has been and he always will be.

    a few tidbits:

    Goodman DID NOT write the article. He left fox sports. That’s mentioned in the article. I’m sure you’ll appologize to him later.

    Also, being a 2nd round pick DOES NOT make you an NBA player. It gives you an opportunity to go to camp with the team, but there is no guarantee that you will be on the team.

    Come on Jeff? Liggins got squeezed out to make room for the incoming class??? Uh…no he didnt! He made that decision himself, remember he just had a kid and Cal told him and everyone else told him he should come back! Get your facts straight before writing something, yeah pitino pushed rodrick rhodes out the door for ron mercer. But Cal did not push liggins out. Liggins himself said he thought he would lose playing time because of the incoming talent. Coach Cal tells every recruit that they have to earn it in practice or someone else will and they will be the one playing! I have complete respect for your writing but come man…
